The Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) strike which started effectively yesterday is already causing negative effects at various health centres across the nation as medical activities were grounded.

The Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Abeokuta, Ogun State JOHESU Chairman, Mr. Samuel Idowu, who spoke with journalists on behalf of the union, said that the strike became inevitable having served the Federal Government ultimatum without a positive response from the government.

Some of their demands include approval for adjustment of Consolidated Health Salary Scale (CONHESS), improved welfare, adequate funding of the health sector, provision of medical equipment and prompt payment of salaries.

He said: “Only a well-motivated caregiver can provide good medical service without transfer of aggression to patients.”

In a related news, Vice Chairman, Medical Health Workers Union (MHWU) UBTH Branch, Uche Ngozi and President, National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) UBTH Branch, Austin Osigbemhe, said members, particularly nurses, had since yesterday embarked on total strike following the national directive and vowed to sustain the action until the Federal Government meet their demands.
